Subject: [PATCH 0/4] net: cpsw: fix hangs and improve IRQ handling

Hi folks,

patch 1 fixes the bug reported by Yegor Yefremov <yegorslists@...glemail.com>.

patches 2 - 4 improve IRQ handling a little bit.

Tested with BeagleBone Black and AM437x SK. The bug fix has been
tested for almost 3 days non-stop while the following patches
have been tested for a couple of hours with iperf and nuttcp and
NFS root.

Note that we also have a slight throughput improvement after patch 3
when running with AM437x SK (10.0.1.13 below):

That minor decrease on beagleboneblack (10.0.1.101) is so small that's
likely into the error margin, but I'll run some further profiling as
I have a feeling INTC's IRQ handling can be improved.

In any case, patch 1 should go in during the -rc an get backported
all the way back to v3.9, while the other patches can (should) be
delayed for v3.20 merge window.

Felipe Balbi (4):
  net: ethernet: cpsw: fix hangs with interrupts
  net: ethernet: cpsw: unroll IRQ request loop
  net: ethernet: cpsw: split out IRQ handler
  net: ethernet: cpsw: don't requests IRQs we don't use
